Blackboard shows notifications in the global nav, AKA the menu you see by clicking on your name in the upper right corner. You may want to edit how, where, and for what courses these notifications appear. Here’s how to edit notification settings on a course-by-course basis.
… don’t tell anyone.
Honestly, though, you can get away with this as long as you check within each course and your MCC email often. But why not take advantage of Blackboard’s tools? By following the steps below, you can turn off the Student Orientation course notifications once you’re done with it, and, even better!, you can sign up for email updates for certain activity, something that’s not default.
To do this, first open the Global Navigation menu (click on your name in the upper right corner of any screen), then open the settings “shade.”
Then click on edit notification settings.
Find and click on the course for which you want to edit notification settings. There’s also bulk edit, which allows you to set things up for multiple courses at a time.
Here, you can choose what kind of notifications you receive (and where — email or via your mobile device, if you have the app installed) from this course, or turn all off. Just check or uncheck the boxes.
